This is an interesting read- with many view points through out history... from women- all who write short little excerpts that pertain to womens issues, sexuality, femenism, and other topics. It is nice that there are short stories (some only a page) and so you can obtain a bit of info for fuel for thought with out having to have a large block of time to read. I do wish that there were a few more recent writers included. Other then that, it was great and I think it would be a great read for any young woman, or adult women "just because"..... not because they are a student required to.
